Cush my friend I'm happy to be one indeed - but the one I am is Scots - not English. Hence my taste for a fine malt whisky. (To say nothing of sundry other alcoholic beverages...)And speaking of which - how come my glass is empty again? Dire, you been sneaking slurps??

So - has anyone seen the Star Trek episode (1960's) where Scotty gets the alien drunk (and himself as well!) on some very old Scotch.
This bottle of aged Scotch is partly responsible for saving the Enterprise!!!

The acting by James Doohan is great - he gets slammered and slides down the wall!

Ah yes, the great James Doohan - a good guy for a Canuck and sadly missed. Here's to him.

I do remember that one... and as I recall it was a fine bottle too, be even better today... aged another 40 years!

Good dr. flashback I do have a boon to beg, or something for you to consider. I'm going to put my idea up here in a bit, but it will require a show that all (yeah, right) can agree on and you seem to be the go to man for that sort of thing. Watch for subject: collective consciousness and think about it. Might be fun...

cush212: i know, I should mind my own business but I saw "collective consciousness" and I traveled back in time to Lake Placid (1983-10-17)

-- complete circle of heads hand-in-hand goin' round the hallway during "The Wheel" - never saw anything like it ever again. Complete circle of people hand-in-hand (no Vit A or any other enhancements due to surgery at the time so I know it was real)

- Gold dripping from Jerry's guitar -- came out with the biggest grin I had ever seen - opening notes of Sugaree let us know we were in for something special.

--sorry for not minding my own business; pain meds just kicked in and I'm trying to land and your post grabbed me. -- AshesRising

There was an instance of what I call "bumper dancing" at Ventura one year... Started out with a half dozen or so dancing, one bumps gently into another and before long just about everyone I can see is gently bumping itno each other then bouncing off. Like soft, slow pinballs. It was a hoot! Hadn't thought about that in awhile, thanks. The Grateful version of slam dancing, a ton of fun, especially bumping into the girls!!!

I live in the Southwest, that must explai my affinity for the "nector of agave" or tequila as we call it around here. The a malted whiskey does hit the spot too! Cheers! Over the lips through the gums, watch out braincells, here it comes!

Did you know that its a complete myth that booze blitzs braincells? Of course it pretty much screws up your kidney, your liver, your waistline, your wallet and your social skills - but what the hell - nothing's perfect!

Here's mud in yer eye!

To quote Napoleon Dynamite: "Lucky!"
And as I am of Irish roots, I consider all Scotsman true bretheren. Unless you are planning to win Wibeldon with a blancmonge. The Black Watch Pipes & Drums is always a must see when they are in the US.

If you haven't already can I recommend you try some of the Islay malts - such as Lagavulin, Caol Isla, Bunnabhain and Laphroaig - mouthfuls to be savoured...

Laphroaig is one of my favorites, when I can find it.

Always worth finding a good malt, eh?... And with that, I'm off to bed.
